The moral of my story will be different perhaps to different people.

This is WAR – German politicians turn on Angela Merkel amid call for martial law
BUFFETT: Actually, there’s been class warfare going on for the last 20 years, and my class has won.
We’re the ones that have gotten our tax rates reduced dramatically. If you look at the 400 highest taxpayers in the United States in 1992, the first year for figures, they averaged about $40 million of [income] per person. In the most recent year, they were $227 million per person — five for one. During that period, their taxes went down from 29 percent to 21 percent of income. So, if there’s class warfare, the rich class has won.
It's a tragic situation, but sanity will win out in the end I believe.
